I feel the school does not prepare the children well for college. As a former student, I struggled adjusting to the actual study time that was involved in college. I can only remember taking books home to study a few times. The school needs better teachers, that better prepare for the children's future.

I am dissappointed with WBHS due to each student not having their own text books. Students have to share books, which must remain in the classroom for the next class, therefore, books are not brought home for students to do homework. That also creates a problem for me as a parent to know what my child is studying at any given time. Also, the choices of extra activities are slim, as well as teacher/parent communication. I would love to see this community trive but it needs alot of work.

I love this school. It's much better than Bibb County High. I have so much fun here. And the teachers make learning fun and a lot easier as well.

1. Principal leadership is outstanding and a welcomed improvement! He has made great strides in the areas of student and teacher character, academics, dress code, teacher quality, safety, and discipline. You see him walking the halls, checking in on classes, and at all school events. He's highly visible and accessible. 2. The STI website has enabled parents to keep up with their child's progress; however, we still need more teacher participation in this area. 3. We are weak in the area of fine arts and cultural/intellectual interests; however, our school system is in the process of offering more electives and trying to make the Access classes available to all students. 4. We have a very low parental involvement rate, although it has improved this year. 5. Our physical education is pitiful and needs activities for the students and teacher supervision/involvement.

West Blocton High is a wonderful learning environment for students. The students are bright and involved in many programs after school. Parent involvement is at an all-time high. I am very proud of this school, and proud to say I live in the town of West Blocton.
